Together We Grow

Welcome to SpiritCorps! This 21st Century literacy, social-emotional learning and positive values project begins with personal video stories from program staff and friends, inspired by the lives of the historic heroes that SPIRIT SERIES celebrates. We hope our accounts of challenge and triumph will inspire YOUR class to explore these life lessons, then respond with their own video stories. For use with your SERIES curriculum or as a stand alone in grades five through ten. To learn more contact: spiritcorps@spiritseries.org.
